This is great news for dogs with arthritis ... it's a natural way to improve pain and mobility without the unwanted side effects of prescription anti-inflammatories.
Green Eggs is a good source of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). These include joint repairing chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid, as well as collagen and anti-inflammatory fatty acids that can:
Dogs 10 - 25 lbs: ............ 1/4 tsp daily
Dogs 26 - 50 lbs: ............ 1/2 tsp daily
Dogs 50 - 75 lbs: ............ 1 tsp daily
Dogs 76+ lbs: .................. 2 tsp daily
Green Eggs is a daily supplement with ingredients that can protect and support joints including:
Green Lipped Mussel: Rich in anti-inflammatory fats. Rich in GAGs to help restore healthy cartilage.
NEM® Brand Eggshell Membrane: Rich in joint supporting GAGs. Research shows NEM® can help reduce stiffness, joint pain and help protect cartilage against breakdown.
Poria Mushroom: The Poria cocos mushroom has anti-inflammatory properties that can help ease joint pain and swelling.
Curcumin: Curcumin is known for promoting a healthy inflammatory response and improving joint health. It also supports brain health.
Active Ingredients per 3/4 tsp (2,100mg):
Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) ............ 1,200mg
NEM Brand Eggshell Membrane ............................. 450mg
Poria cocos Mushroom ........................................... 300mg
Curcumin ................................................................. 150mg

Scientists are studying Green Lipped Mussel as a safe alternative for dogs that are unable to tolerate the side effects of NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
Both Green Lipped Mussels and NSAIDs are COX (cyclooxygenase) inhibitors. COX enzymes ramp up inflammation by triggering immune chemicals called prostaglandins.
Green Lipped Mussels are also rich in glycosaminoglycans (or GAGs), including chondroitin sulfate. Chondroitin strengthens and builds joint cartilage.
Green Lipped Mussels are also a good source of anti-inflammatory fats including EPA and DHA. Four Leaf Rover Green Lipped Mussels are rich in fats with an average 6-10% content.
In a 2007 study, dogs were given Green Lipped Mussel for 8 weeks. They had a significant improvement in pain and mobility. And most of the dogs didn’t need pain meds.
The Green Lipped Mussels in Green Eggs are sustainably farmed in New Zealand. They are carefully freeze dried, highly bioavailable and a good source of vitamins and minerals.
NEM® Brand Eggshell Membrane
NEM® is rich in glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) including chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid, as well as collagen.
A 2017 randomized trial showed NEM® reduced exercise-related joint pain in just 8 days. In other published clinical trials, it was shown to reduce pain in 7 - 10 days.
In vivo and in vitro studies also show NEM® can decrease levels of inflammatory substances associated with joint inflammation. NEM® is also clinically proven to help protect joint cartilage.
NEM® is sourced from human-grade eggs that are used for baked goods. While other eggshell membranes can come from discarded, unhealthy eggs, NEM® comes from healthy eggs used in human grade products.
Poria has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years.
Poria is a mass of mycelium that grows on the roots of trees and not technically a mushroom. It's low in starch (less than 5%) and rich in immune-modulating beta-glucans. Four Leaf Rover's Poria is a minimum 30% beta-glucan.
Poria is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It's often used not just for joint inflammation, but also for swelling and edema in paws and ears, as well as skin issues.
The Poria mushrooms in Green Eggs are 100% organic and grown on trees, not in a lab.
Curcumin is the active substance found in turmeric. It promotes a healthy inflammatory response and can improve joint health.
The Curcumin in Green Eggs is carbon-14 tested to ensure it contains at least 95% curcuminoids, making it a highly concentrated source of curcumin. Carbon-14 testing measures the amount of carbon-14 in every sample and compares the result to the international standards. The higher the bio-based carbon, the more naturally sourced the Curcumin. This also guarantees your dog's curcumin is free of the synthetic products common in the supplement industry today.
